As soon as we got on the ship we were bombarded with staff selling beverage packages and selling time in the spa treatments. The tours were overpriced and overcrowded. Woul not recommend anyone to do this cruise to see Europe.  Its more to stay on the ship. We have cruised 4 times now and we love it, even with princess in Alaska but wont use princess again. Overpriced....

Ship Quality
not enough stairs and lifts and some stairs lead nowhere
Food and Dining
staff was very good, but on 5 occasions did not have the wine we ordered
Cabin / Stateroom
bed was very comfortable
Service and Staff
dining room staff fantastic
out of 12 nights only 3 shows were good, the comedians were not good or funny
Children's Programs not applicable
Onboard Activities
didn't use them as we were on tours that took all day
Destinations and Excursions

Tours are to crowded and too far from Port.
